ceiling increase into this deal, get it out of the way so moody's and s&p won't downgrade us again? >> of course they should. a mistake not to do that in 2010 when they extended the tax cuts for two years. you cut your revenues but you don't raise your borrowing limit. that was a mistake. of course, we should do that again and get it out of the way. >> do you think that if we don't we're going to take more credit downgrades? everybody is talking about moody's because they can't do it the last time. s&p is still out there. do you think there's a risk of a credit downgrade which really hurt the stock market, the stock market last year? >> yeah. i think there is, but i would hope it's attached more to the balance, whether we get a balance of taxes and revenues, revenues and spending cuts. i think if -- if the rating agencies see some real substance there, if wempro our fiscal future for the next ten years that's the best way to avoid a downgrade. if we don't see any of that, and we've got a debt ceiling increase, i'm not sure that's going to help much from their point of view. >> you'

[ rimshot ] and second, interest rates actually went down and they went down very big. so worry completely misplaced. totally misplaced. now you got the picture. big scare after stocks went down initially but then after a decline similar to the one we're having now we began to see stocks stabilize. which ones stopped going down first? that's what we've got to figure out. there are curious pictures of stocks that do well in a recession and stocks that had gotten down to where their yields were very competitive against prevailing interest rates. it's true that if the fiscal cliff is not bridged your after tax dividend yield will be less than you're currently getting and we just
